Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

First there were the Visuals, then someone thought up a story
Let's imagine an impossible setup, and tell it like it was science. Then start ripping it apart with every action, each one more impossible than the one before it. Add some impossible beings, made impossible by the previous impossible setup, and make them a secret central point of the whole plot. Now throw in some socio-political overtone to everything you say and do. Don't explain it, just throw it in, it doesn't need to make any sense. Also add some romance. No one will know where it came from, or how it got there, but nevertheless this will be the main plot.
Oh, and make some stunning visuals. No matter if the rest doesn't make any sense at all, the few stunning scenes you thought up will more than enough to make up for that. Just repeat each scene a couple of times throughout the movie.
End up with something nobody expects, makes no sense, is completely impossible according to all you told your audience before, and adds nothing to the story... except some stunning visual and a faint political statement.
Makes you think the film was not "written then filmed", but rather the other way around: first there were the visuals, then someone sprinkled some random stuff all over them, and this movie came to being.
